ill always miss the kitten stage but i love the adult stage the best. jessies getting old so this is new for me to have an old cat but shes just slowing down.
gylfie is a 10 month old kitten still. and if shes like daystar her cousin, she wont stop growing til 2 years old. daystar is 2 years old now and shes finally filled out. she was lanky unlike her family but her family is all hefty and stocky. well daystar finally filled out and is just like her older siblings at my aunts house!
jessie is 6 years... not old, but as i mentioned in another post, shes aging early. shes like a 10 year old cat. shes slowing down earlier than normal. its genetic with her.
destiny is a stray we took in. she started developing this pea sized lump in one of her mammary glands. in 2 weeks that pea lump turned to the size of a grapefruit. and she had 4 more growing! when the vet seen it, he was shocked... he said it was definately breast cancer. we aked how old she was as we didnt know. he looked at her teeth and said she was no older than 2 years.... thats why he was shocked. its extremely rare for a cat that young to get breast cancer. its common over the age of 9... NOT 2 years old! i asked the prognosis, he said very good with a very rare chance of it coming back... only problem is... it was expensive... but we got it done
they did a spay, mastectomy, and tumour removal. removed 5 tumours, the largest one was 2 inches in diameter, but it had merged with the one next to it so felt larger. shes recovered greatly though as you can see in the photo above!
will get into her full story in a separate post
